As one might expect, FC Dallas midfielder Mauro Diaz has a lot of people watching him this season. Not only are folks around Major League Soccer believe he could be a MVP candidate this year but most know how special of a player he can be.

Because of that, he is now gaining interest from overseas clubs including a couple in Europe and some in back in his home country of Argentina.

According to FutbolMLS.com, Malmö in Sweden, Colón de Santa Fe and Estudiantes de La Plata of Argentina, and Elche in Spain are all said to be keeping a watchful eye on him this season.

The report states that the two Argentine clubs likely aren't going to be able to match anything that he could get from Europe in a potential move.

Diaz does have two more years left on his current contract as well, which means if he can remain healthy for a long period of time, interest like this will only continue to pick up. I had heard whispers of a team in Sweden being interested in Diaz a couple weeks ago but my sources over there indicated that the Scandinavian clubs are mostly just keeping a closer eye on MLS these days than in the last few years.

What do you think of the transfer interest in Diaz? Do you think FCD will be able to sell him before the end of his contract or will he be the type of player that will end up sticking around MLS and Dallas for the majority of his career?
